How does she end up kissing another girl, Amy (played by Kalki)?
Tanya doesn’t want to kiss Amy. They’re playing truth and dare. Amy is a cool girl who likes to try different things. It’s her turn and she ‘dares’ to kiss me.
How do you rate Kalki as a kisser?
It was hardly a kiss.
Is it the only time you have been kissed by a girl?
(Laughs) Yes. And it will be the last time ever.
Has any girl made a pass at you?
Yes. In Standard 10, there was a girl in my badminton team. I think she had the hots for me. Though she never said anything, the way she used to talk and give me attention, made her intentions very obvious. She would feel very jealous if I talked to guys…
Were you told that you would have to kiss a girl?
No. Bejoy told me about everything else but the kiss. Well, he did bring it up once, but I thought he was kidding. It wasn’t until we were rolling, that Bejoy announced that the scene was on. Kalki kisses me in that scene.
Did you enjoy it?
I was traumatised. Thankfully, it was just one take. The reaction in the film was what I was actually going through at that time. I haven’t even kissed a guy onscreen. And I did my first kiss with a girl! That was an experience.
What is your take homosexuality?
To each its own. I like to kiss a guy and want to be kissed by a guy, but I have nothing against people who have homosexual tendencies. I have gay friends.
